Aurora is known for its great outdoor recreation, but this Colorado city also offers some great dining options. Granted, there are tons of eateries we could recommend, but for now, we’ll focus on some of the most common cravings: pizza, Mexican food, burgers, and sushi.
Best pizza in Aurora
A local favorite is Mama Alvino’s Pizzeria on East Colfax Ave. Here you’ll find delicious cheesy pizza with all sorts of toppings and exquisite calzones. The best thing about Mama Alvino’s is that it’s just a quick 5 minute car ride (or 9 minutes by bike) from Legacy at Fitz.
Best Mexican food
We’d venture to say that Tacos Selene has some of the best street tacos in Aurora, complimented by a delectable salsa bar. Choose to eat in or take out all the classic Mexican dishes like tacos, tortas, and sopes. Try the “al pastor” or some traditional tacos de lengua. You’ll find Tacos Selene at 15343 East 6th Ave, a mere 8 minute drive or 15 minute bike ride from us.
Best burger in Aurora
We all crave a fat, juicy cheeseburger now and again. When that craving strikes, Fatburger is a great option. Average-sized patties are no match for their huge burgers of top quality beef. And yes, they even have veggie burgers and vegan options. While it’s a little more expensive than some fast food places, it’s definitely worth the price point. Fatburger is at 14221 E Cedar Ave, 7 minutes by car or 14 minutes by bike from your apartment.
Right around the corner from Legacy at Fitz, on East Colfax Ave, you’ll find Sushi-Rama Fitzsimons. The signature sushi conveyor belt brings all sorts of sushi rolls for you to try right to your table. Sushi-Rama at Forum Fitzsimmons is just a 6 min walk away from Legacy at Fitz in Aurora.
